*important addendum: it’s supposed to say the ‘96 Bulls. The ‘85 Bulls featured Mike Smrek in the post, so…

Photos from Dwight Howard’s All-Star Game: Lil’ Wayne and Floyd Mayweather (who received some boos) were the celebrity coaches along with John Wall and Josh Smith as the assistants. 

EDIT: if you are a sneakerhead, here are all the noteworthy shoes worn during the game: HERE and HERE

Rebounds can be highlights, too. Because everything in Atlanta is a highlight: the rim shops, the roller rinks, the strip malls, the strip clubs; even shot selection.
Josh Smith, maybe more than any other player in the league, is applicable to the city for which he plays. If you’re going to shoot that three, rock that three. It’s sugar sweet breezes in a city fueled on gangsta dreams. Roll up your sleeves, blow out some bubble, then take a big ole’ sweet country swing at it.

NBA Off Season Preview: Atlanta Hawks

The city of Atlanta recently said good bye to Bobby Cox, the long time manager of the Braves. In his 20 plus year gear with the Braves, Cox earned the nickname of “America’s Bridesmaid,” due to his inability to take the Braves to the next level. Of course, we could apply to the same tag to the Atlanta Hawks. Not that the Hawks haven’t gone to the big dance and choked on the biggest stage, but they just seem to fade away after the second round. Perhaps, the best way to describe the current Hawks squad is that the team is a lot like a hoarder. There is a desire to change and make progression, but once the squad is put the test of making a grand change, they just can’t throw that sweaty old headband.

Look at the 2010 playoffs, after struggling to defeat the upstart and Andrew Bogut-less Milwaukee Bucks, the Hawks just threw their hands up and rolled over for the Orlando Magic. The Hawks didn’t even make it interesting. They couldn’t get past that struggle with the Bucks and were content to wallow in their own mediocrity.

After re-signing Joe Johnson for an absurd amount of money and hiring a new coach (Larry Drew), the Hawks seemed poised to do what?

Well, players like Josh Smith, Joe Johnson, Jamal Crawford, and Al Horford will have great individual numbers and be really great for your fantasy team.

Perhaps new coach Larry Drew will provide more motivation than the Hawks’ last coach, Michael Woodson who infamously decided to shave off his eyebrows before playing the Houston Rockets last season. Granted, the move inspired the team in the regular season, but they still shat the bed in the playoffs. Drew is inheriting a consistent regular season team and maybe it’ll take an entire body waxing to push the Hawks to the Eastern Conference finals.

Here’s the deal, the Hawks will a good regular season team this year; probably the fifth or sixth seed in the Eastern Conference, but can they become a playoff team this year? Will they just shrug their shoulders and say, “ehhhh, we know we’re going to lose to the Celtics/Magic/Bulls in the first round…so, let’s just plan our vacation instead.”

Predictions & Fun Stuff

  • Josh Smith will dunk so hard that he will create a rift in the time space continuum
  • Did you know back up center Zaca Pachulia raps? He does.

And for no good reason, here’s a “Thriller” remake/spoof featuring the Atlanta Hawks’ mascot:

5 days left until the 2010-11 NBA season tips off.
Brought to you by Josh Smith, the new human highlight film. 
Something crazy must have happened this off-season. Something crazy enough to make the world forget about the upstart Atlanta Hawks. J-Smoove wants to remind you, once again.
Thanks to South Beach Super-friends most people have forgotten that Smith and the Hawks won 53 games last year, the most since Dikembe sported the red and yellow. They also finished 3rd out East, beating out the Boston Celtics and securing home court in the first round.
Last year Smith displayed what was arguably the best season of his short NBA career, putting up career numbers in feild goal percentage (50.5%), rebounds (8.7 rpg), assists (4.2 apg) and steals (1.6 spg). Consequently, the Hawks had their best season in over a decade. Since Smith’s arival, the Hawks have improved their record year after year. 
Although Smith’s scoring averages weren’t drastically improved (15.7 ppg versus 15.6 the year before) he had become a smarter and more efficient player. His Achilles’ heel has always been his decision making, mainly shooting long range jumpers that he has no business shooting. For his career, he is a 26.6% 3-point shooter yet he has some how managed to launch 478 3’s in his 6 season. Last year he finally kicked the bad habit, sort of. He only put up 23 bone headed 3-pointers, down from 110 total the year before. Thus vastly boosting his FG%, TS% and eFG%. 
His improved offense was not the headline story for Smith last year, it was his defense. He finished the season 3rd in blocks, was voted onto the All-Defensive 2nd team and racked up enough Defensive Player of the Year votes to finish second behind two-time winner Dwight Howard. 
When it comes to Josh Smith, I’m not sure I see championship pedigree, and I don’t care. He is the next Human Highlight Film. his scoring prowess doesn’t compare to Dominique’s but the dunks are on par. Smith, like ‘Nique is a former Slam Dunk Champion and is blessed with both size and power to go along with superb agility. That makes for a deadly combination and for some youtube worthy dunks. 
With the superpowers in South Beach, Orlando and Beantown I don’t expect much out of the Hawks this year, especially since Joe Johnson won the lottery and will probably pull an Allan Huston. The Hawks might even get swept out the playoffs for the third consecutive season. I do, however, expect Josh Smith to provide us with a few highlights, and that alone is worth the price of admission.

This isn’t how you imagined things tonight, is it Josh?
Note for the future: if your team is down one with 55 seconds to go, and you have more than 15 seconds on the shot clock, do not jack up a three.
The reason you’ve been so good this year is that you ignored that pulsing instinct inside you to vomit up jumpers whenever possible.

Stat-O-Rama: April 20th, 2010

Line of the Night: Josh Smith, 21 points (9-11 81.8%!), 14 rebounds, 9 assits, 2 steals and 2 blocked shots and most importantly, the W. It’s hard to fathom that J-Smoov wasn’t an All-Star this year.

Honorable Mention: Kobe (39 pts) vs.  Durant (32 pts) was nice to watch in person, but these two bros took a combined 54 shots, 21 free throws and yet only managed to record one(!) assist each. Didn’t your parents teach you to share with your play-friends?
